When visiting Priorat (which I highly recommend doing btw 😍) you’ll hear a lot about the 5 founders who are featured on this special limited edition of only 1,050 bottles with grapes from Clos Mogador, Clos Martinet & Partida Bellvisos 🤩 A rare bottle @ €130 from @vilaviniteca 👍 ping @gabymeetswine if you want one as it’s nearly all gone 😁

Wow this is neat wine from Mallorca.
Smells as if it has been filtered through cavernous cliffs. The fruit is all flinty, bright, and interesting. Lots of pit and rind, a great wine that showcases how well wines can grow and absorb the ocean air. The Saline shows itself in the wine, if only slightly.
Enjoyed at one of José Andrés fine establishments.
